About Jeremy Greene

From rough beginnings, Jeremy Greene overcame hardship to bring a fresh voice to the world of R&B. Born in Winslow, Maine, Jeremy had music in his blood. Both of his grandfathers were in music, his mother was a singer and his father was signed to a country music label. However, his life was far from ideal. His father left when he was a child and his mother struggled with substance abuse issues. When Jeremy was ten years old, a choir teacher discovered his natural talent and offered him the musical lead in a school production. His performance in the play, whose plot eerily mirrored his life, intensely moved his mother, motivating her to seek treatment. “That’s when I first realized the power of music,” Jeremy remembers. Sadly, his mother’s continued setbacks forced Jeremy into the foster care system, where he was shuffled between group homes and shelters from the age of 14. During these troubled times, he used music to escape from the harsh realities of life, listening to Jackson Five, Boyz II Men and Tony, Toni Toné. At 18, Jeremy decided to pursue his dream of becoming a singer. He aspired to make music an outlet for his emotions, thoughts and beliefs. “One night I prayed for the power to express myself through songwriting. I woke up at 4am and wrote my first song.”
